How to Filter a Dashboard in Salesforce

Filter a Dashboard

Add a Filter

You can add a filter to a dashboard to control the data it contains. For example, if you have three sales offices you could create a single dashboard with filters for each office, instead of having to create three separate dashboards.

  1. Open the dashboard you want to filter and click Edit.

    Components in the dashboard are often based on different Salesforce objects.

  4. Specify the Filter Options for the selected field.
  5. Click OK.
